NagTag-Must-have help for parents
By Mona Shah
Have your kids ever forgotten something important? Want to stop nagging them to remember the things they need for school or sports? No more nagging! And you'll never have to race back home again for those forgotten items. A nifty device called the Nagtag reminds your kids what to pack for school or sports.
Parent reminders, homework, school lunches, event notices... if you're not organized school commitments can get the better of you. If you have one child at school it's tough enough to get organized but multiply that by two, three or more and it's almost impossible to stay on top of it all.
Available in two versions -school and sport - it hooks easily to a gym bag or backpack. Just scroll down a personalized list before you leave to be sure you haven't forgotten anything.
Lindsay Kamm Holt and her husband Tate Holt found inspiration for the product on the sidelines of a girl's soccer game. Moms complained about their daughters forgetting team jerseys, cleats, etc. One mom suggested laminating a printed checklist. "Why not make it fun - something kids would want to use every day?" says Holt.
So was born the Nagtag, a cool-looking, kid-friendly electronic bag tag that hooks onto a kid's sports bag or school backpack and reminds them what to pack inside. An LCD screen displays a checklist created by the user. The $20 NagTag is also loaded with pre-programmed master lists of hundreds of suggested items for school and sports, or kids can enter their own unique items.
Important for moms is the emergency contact feature that stores critical information such as parent phone numbers, name of school or coach, allergies, conditions or medications, etc. If a child is injured or disoriented, emergency personnel can easily locate the parents or school, and will immediately know if the child has any allergies or medical conditions.
Nagtags - so Mom doesn't have to!
